Tufts Hillel supports your children on their journeys as they learn what it means to be Jewish in the 21st century. We recognize that many college students today connect differently to religion than their parents and grandparents did. We give them the guidance, resources, and opportunities to participate in a vibrant Jewish community in ways that work for them.

At Tufts Hillel, students find meaning in a range of activities — engagement with social justice and community service; Jewish learning and education; travel to Israel and other experiences that connect them with a Jewish community

We are a student-led organization that develops programs that are compelling and accessible to a broad range of students from culturally Jewish to traditionally observant. Tufts Hillel provides all these opportunities through a rich array of programs designed to broaden opportunities for Jewish exploration and growth.

By creating a relevant, personal, and vibrant Jewish community, we are changing the way hundreds of students each year understand and experience Jewish life. After graduation, Tufts Hillel students carry this community with them into the world – into their homes, their work, their synagogues, federations and community centers.

Participate in Family Weekend

In conjunction with Parents & Family Weekend, Tufts Hillel invites parents to join the campus Jewish community for our pre-Shabbat reception followed by services and dinner.
